I'm running OS 10.13.6 on a mac book pro. My Iomega MDHD500-TE is not recognized. What to do?
I suspect that you don't have an Iomega driver in play for use with this Macbook pro that the OS recognizes. There are other possible explanations, you might have a corrupted volume or there might be a problem with the file structure on the Iomega. But if the Iomega was not previously recognized by this MacPro, I think what is missing is a useful driver. You might try one of the driver hunter utilities and see if it finds such for the iomega. If several are found, you would have to try each one at a time and uninstall any that did not work before trying the next, I think.
Here is something else you might try. On the MacPro, on the desktop go into Applications>Utility folder and from the Utilities folder launch the Disk Utility application. If your Iomega is discoverable, it will show up in the left side of the Utility window. If you see it, click on the left side of the window and choose Disk Repair.
If you don't see it in the left side of the Utility window, you may have a corrupted volume preventing it from properly being read on your Mac or there may be a problem with the file structure of the Iomega.

Iomega UltraMax 1TB Triple Interface won't start
I would go on the web interface of the device. Find the IP address of the device and enter it into your browser. Maybe it has a setting for 'sleep' mode. Also, on rare occasions, the power adapter can go bad on them unexpectedly, not your fault, just a bad batch of hardware.
